HOLY fu*k, some ppl love to hate as hard as they can with everything they got... but fu*k that, i like it that's my opinion its different and new. Its music... if you need music to justify how "hardcore" you are in order to make yourself feel good, then in my eyes that's pretty pathetic. Grow the fu*k up

I'm not trying to start any controversy over the definition of the word, BUT as of right now, I rated it a 5/5 ("Classic"). I respect Kanye for what he did with this album on a few different levels; creativity, originality, for reaching out in pain/making himself look vulnerable, and for simple fact that he experimented on a major scale in front of the public eye (or ear), which so many people are afraid to do these days, and trash it at the sight of something foreign. Call me a groupie, but whatever, I respect Kanye above anything else.

You should wait a little bit before rating this one... But I bet it'll grow on every patient pair of ears.

Kanye set a creative, unique path in the rap game. This album is, simply put, phenomenal to me.

But yeah, I guess it requires to get a lil open minded there, if you're stuck in loud bass, loud high hats, hard snares/claps. I can't deny it, it might take some time to change your expectations.

Every track is fire. Yes, I said it, every track is fire. But you gotta exclude the bonus track (Pinnochio Story); cause that song is whack.lol.

Even the track I thought would be whack juice (Robocop) is actually real nice.
Maybe its just me, but I'm a sucker for corny 80's pop. This is a blend of Hiphop production and 80s pop, so its win.

I like Phil Collins, I hate autotune, I love Hiphop beats. So basicall its an 8/10, might be a 9 when autotune grows on me..Cause Ye doesn't overdo the effect like Wayne did on Lollipop

This album hits home for me it is not typical kanye which can throw you off so when I started listening to it I made sure to remember that and I have to say this is probably the best album I have heard all year long I can see myself playing this months from now which means a lot for me cause I do not listen to have the sh*t that has came out this year more than a couple of times. The production was on point and you can tell kanye put his all into this one it has substance.

Pop songs seem to last a lot longer than rap songs.
I still spin Whitney's music from 10 years ago, meanwhile I rarely listen to RD when I'm not in the mood.

This here is for the eclectic listener if you not one with an open-ear (like most on bX) then no ones making you listen...as for the review 4/5 easily creativity, with an utmost reality in making music from the heart which is what i expect from kanye..doesnt get a 5 cuz i know Ye can make a better hip hop album but as for this pop art concept thing hes on he stepped in done his thing done quite good and hopefully will return with a good a.ss job.
well said!

I can't believe this. I was completely against this project Ye was doing. Thought it was going to be brutal... but I was proved wrong.

All auto-tune and singing aside, the music is beautiful. Kanye came through on the production end without almost any flaws. I absolutely love the orchestra he added into Robocop especially.
I also thought the auto-tune would be really annoying through a full album, but through 2 listens of the retail release, it doesn't seem to bother me at all, maybe because he doesn't use the auto-tune to full affect every song.

Didn't think that freestyle at the end was needed on the album... kind of throws it off but not a big deal. Kanye came through solid.

Now time will tell if it has replay value.
:applause:

same here my dude:cool-smiley-009:
